We are very excited to have you all attend our wedding and it will be a unique experience! Below are a few common questions we think will help plan your trip to attend our wedding. If you have additional questions, please feel free to call or text us! Triparna (210-289-9441) Zia (713-517-5305)
Question

What documents do I need to travel to Mexico?

Answer

- US passport holders - If you have a valid US passport with at least one empty page (for Mexican immigration to stamp), you're good! - If you have an Indian passport with a US visa, no Mexican tourist visa is needed. - If you have a non-US passport, please reach out to us on a one on one basis. Our travel agent, Shaadi Destinations, can help us navigate Mexican tourist visas.

Question

What airport should I fly into?

Answer

Cancun International Airport (CUN)

Question

How do I get from the airport to the resort?

Answer

The resort is about 45 minutes from the airport so you will need transportation. We have set up a round trip shuttle service for $26/person that you can request when you book your room through Shaadi Destinations. This is the easiest way to get from the airport to the resort. They will pick you up based on your provided flight information (including if your flight gets delayed) and will drop you back off at the airport to catch your flight home! Use this link to book your airport transfer: https://www.lomasagentportal.com/22384/group/TRIPARNAANDMIRZA/transfers.html Alternatively, you can always call an Uber if you don't want to use the shuttle service. Lastly, if you rent a car, Yes Rent A Car will pick you up from the airport and take you to their car rental lot (similar to all other rental companies).

Question

Where should we stay?

Answer

We will be having our wedding at the Planet Hollywood Cancun in Costa Mujeres! We highly recommend staying at the resort because there are not many other hotels nearby. Please use our special link through our travel agency to ensure you get the best rates. https://www.shaadidestinations.com/triparna-and-mirza (Copy & paste the link into your web browser). It is an all inclusive resort and we have a block of rooms available at a discounted rate. The resort has a main hotel area that is family friendly and an adult side for only adults (over the age of 18). Both areas are connected and accessible for all wedding events. So book whichever you like! Please note, if you do not stay at the resort, there is a $80 fee per person, per day to access the venue on the days of the wedding events. We will have two days of events. If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to either one of us!

Question

How long should you stay?

Answer

The wedding events are on March 1st and 2nd and Planet Hollywood has a three night minimum (if you book through our travel agency). If you would like to just attend the wedding, we recommend checking in Thursday, Feb 29th and checking out Sunday, March 3rd. If you would like to treat this more like a vacation (we know we are!), feel free to add nights before or after the wedding. The discounted room rates will apply. We will be there Wednesday, Feb. 28th through Sunday March 3rd. Come hang with us!

Question

What is covered in the “all inclusive” room rate?

Answer

The room rate includes unlimited food and beverages, both non-alcoholic and alcohol. The resort has 16 restaurants, each one is included in the rate. Beverage stations and bars are located throughout the resort and are also included in the rate. Planet Hollywood Cancun brings curated entertainment experiences with refreshing pools, luxurious rooms, nine bars, four swimming pools, a lazy river, trampoline park, kids/teens club, and a mini-golf course, making it the ideal destination for work, family, romance and play.
